Rebecca St. James has written What is He Thinking?? What Guys Want Us to Know About Dating, Love, and Marriage. This book is a great "manual" for female teens and those in their 20's and even 30's that are still single and want to know more about men and why they act the way they do in regards to dating and even marriage. I was impressed with this book - St. James has done her research - she has interviewed young men to ask them the tough questions so that girls can read the book and have a clearer understanding of the men they are in relationships (or may soon be in relationships) with. I think her variety of men she interviewed makes this an extremely useful tool - it is honest, wise, and insightful - all while being humorous! This was an enjoyable read and I know our girls out there dating or getting ready to date will enjoy it as well.
In WHAT IS HE THINKING??, Rebecca interviews a range of men from high-profile types to the guys next door, men that every woman can relate to. Although the interviews focus on single guys ages 20-35, Rebecca also includes words of wisdom from older mentors she respects who have been successfully married for years, people like her dad, life coach, and pastor.
The men share their thoughts on topics like how women can respect themselves and the men in their lives, modesty, purity, taking it slow, friendship, letting guys lead, and more. This book gives them the floor to say what they would really like women to know.
The men respond candidly to questions such as:
• What is the most attractive quality to you in a woman?
• Is modesty truly attractive?
• Is neediness a turn-off?
• What do you find beautiful?
• How can we be dependent on God for our identity, not on you?
• How can we help you with boundaries physically?
Rebecca also discusses her own dating life, speaking openly about the single life, her struggle with loneliness, and her hope for the future. She challenges women to see the men in their lives as brothers in Christ and to trust God with their dating lives.
